In two weeks, Anne Rice, the chronicler of vampires, witches and—under the pseudonym A. N.

"I promised," she says, "that from now on I would write only for the Lord."

Obedience, or The Lying Tale

...a pit of foxes
drunk on rotten brambles of berries,
and the raccoons ransack
a rabbit's unmasked hole.
What do they find but a winter's heap
of droppings? A stolen nest, the cracked shell

of another creature's child.
I imagine this is the rabbit way,
and I will not stray, Mother,
into the forest's thick,
where the trees meet the dark,
though I have known misgivings
of light...
